Sweden never issued stay-at-home orders, kept schools open, didn’t close businesses and the general public does not wear masks… …and the entire country is down to LESS THAN 1 DEATH per day from COVID-19.
Sweden comparing deaths from all causes – COVID-19 isn’t even a blip on the radar.
Sweden’s Economy, After Not Having Lockdown, in Much Better Shape Than Rest of Europe
Sweden’s GDP fell 8.6 in Q2 2020, the country’s worst quarterly decline in modern history. The fall came amid the novel coronavirus panic, which Sweden did not implement full lockdown measures over.
However, the Scandanavian nation markedly outperformed the rest of Europe. Its GDP drop in the second quarter was lower than the 12.1 average experienced in the Eurozone, as well as the 11.9 average across the whole of the EU.
Sweden outperformed several European countries, including Spain (18.5 percent fall), France (13.6 percent), Italy (12.4 percent) and Germany (10.1 percent).
However, Sweden is not currently in a recession. A country is deemed to be in a recession when its economy declines for two consecutive quarters, and Sweden had a GDP growth of 0.1 in Q120.
While fears of a second wave of the outbreak loom over Europe, including in Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, new infections in Sweden have been mostly declining since around late June.
The country reported a 35 percent dip in new cases per 100,000 people in the past 14 days, compared to that reported in the 14 days prior, according to the latest report Thursday from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins releases rapist Ibrahim E. Bouaichi from jail because of coronavirus pandemic, rapist then kills the woman who accused him
Police in Virginia say that a rape suspect released from jail amid the coronavirus pandemic went on to kill the woman who had accused him.
When the pandemic hit, Bouaichi’s lawyers argued that he should be freed awaiting trial because the virus endangered both inmates and their attorneys. He was released on $25,000 bond over the objections of a prosecutor.
Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins released Bouaichi on the condition that he only leave his Maryland home to meet with his lawyers or pretrial services officials.
Alexandria police say that Bouaichi, 33, fatally shot the woman in late July.

Coronavirus vaccine concerns – Components of mRNA Technology “Could Lead to Significant Adverse Events in One or More of Our Clinical Trials,” says Moderna
In comments not generally seen by the public, Moderna stated (p. 33):
[T]here can be no assurance that our lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) will not have undesired effects. Our LNPs could contribute, in whole or in part, to one or more of the following: immune reactions, infusion reactions, complement reactions, opsonation reactions, antibody reactions . . . or reactions to the PEG from some lipids or PEG otherwise associated with the LNP. Certain aspects of our investigational medicines may induce immune reactions from either the mRNA or the lipid as well as adverse reactions within liver pathways or degradation of the mRNA or the LNP, any of which could lead to significant adverse events in one or more of our clinical trials.

Nearly half (46%) of 18-29 year old white liberals have a mental health condition compared to 21% of white conservatives
This is the Pew Research Panel, Wave 64, which interviewed a representative sample of 11,537 American adults between March 19th and March 24th. In analysing the dataset, what really caught Goldberg’s attention was differences in whether interviewees had ever been diagnosed with a mental health condition among the white sample.
According to Pew Research Center data, 56% of Liberal females aged 18 to 29 have been diagnosed with a mental health condition, compared to 33.6% of Liberal males in this age band. Goldberg commented that this is the biggest sex gap by far in this particular dataset, meaning that young, Liberal females are, for some reason, particularly strongly prone to mental illness.
Even among Liberal females aged 30 to 49, over 39% have suffered from a mental illness. The most mentally stable of all are “Conservative” males over the age of 65, 4.5% of whom have ever been told by a doctor that they have a mental health condition
Dr. Emily Ekins, right, of the Cato Institute, presented evidence that poor mental ill health is correlated with perceiving the world as beyond one’s control.
She demonstrated that this is how American Liberals see the world—as controlled by Conservative forces—whereas Conservatives feel that they have agency, and can impact the world, and their place in it, if they work hard enough. In other words, Liberals are fatalistic and this makes them depressed. [What Americans Think Cause Wealth and Poverty, by Emily Ekins, September 27, 2019]
Among older (19 years and older) subjects, females conformed more with surveillance (other people watching) than without it, whereas surveillance did not affect males’ conformity. Among younger (under 19 years) subjects, surveillance had no effects. Analysis of sex differences revealed that older females were significantly more conforming than older males when under surveillance as well as when subjects formed impressions of one another’s likability. Among younger subjects, there were no sex differences

Denmark’s immigration minister has admitted that his country’s integration policy is a “fiasco,” noting that just 17 per cent of Syrian women and 50 per can’t of Syrian men are in work 5 years after moving to the country.
“Unfortunately, we cannot afford to be surprised. When we pursue the same integration policy, then we also get the same results,” said Tesfaye, noting that immigrants from countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, and China do far better than Middle Eastern migrants.
“It is no longer a matter of ramping the transfers up and down. Or amending some points in immigration policy. It is about changing the requirements for newcomers who will begin their lives in Denmark,” said Tesfaye.
Two men have been arrested for planning a protest where hundreds of people were set to “fill up the streets” and defy Melbourne’s lockdown.
Police arrested a 41-year-old man from Mooroolbark on Thursday. He was charged with incitement, bailed and is due to appear at Melbourne Magistrate’s Court on January 21.
Police seized mobile phones and a computer while executing the search warrants.
More than 500 were planning to attend the protest against the State Government’s strict curfew laws and workplace restrictions.

Blackwashing, erasing Irish history – RTE State broadcaster depicts Irish mythological demigod Cú Chulainn / Cúchulainn as a black man
Cú Chulainn, also spelled Cú Chulaind or Cúchulainn and sometimes known in English as Cuhullin, is an Irish mythological demigod who appears in the stories of the Ulster Cycle, as well as in Scottish and Manx mythology. He is believed to be an incarnation of the Irish god Lugh, who is also his father.
Trying to imagine if an African folklore hero was played by a blonde white guy. There would be outrage. But erasing white Irish history is fine.

Many places, including Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York City and others now have rules requiring people coming from coronavirus hotspots to self-quarantine for 14 days after their arrival. In Chicago, this is communicated by ubiquitous variable-message road signs above the highway warning travelers that if they are arriving from a place with elevated coronavirus case counts, they are not welcome until they isolate for 14 days.
New York is taking a more direct approach, setting up checkpoints at many of the city’s entry points, using the sheriff’s office to stop travelers and, if they are coming from one of 35 jurisdictions that are in New York’s mandatory quarantine list, having them fill out a “traveler form.”
Washington, D.C., and multiple other jurisdictions have also instituted mandatory quarantines on travelers coming from certain coronavirus hotspots.

Why diversity training on campus is likely to disappoint “A company is better off doing nothing than mandatory diversity training,”
The University of Florida will require all students, faculty and staff to undergo training on “racism, inclusion and bias.” Northeastern University will institute “cultural competency” and “anti-racism training” for every member of the campus community. And Ohio Wesleyan University will mandate “universal diversity, equity, and inclusion training.”
However, as scholars who study race and social inequality, we know that diversity training suffers from “chronically disappointing results.” Recent research in psychology even suggests that diversity training may cause more problems than it solves.
In terms of reducing bias and promoting equal opportunity, diversity training has “failed spectacularly,” according to the expert assessment of sociologists Frank Dobbin and Alexandra Kalev. When Dobbin and Kalev evaluated the impact of diversity training at more than 800 companies over three decades, they found that the positive effects are short-lived and that compulsory training generates resistance and resentment.
“A company is better off doing nothing than mandatory diversity training,” Kalev concluded.
There is also evidence that emphasizing cultural differences across racial groups can lead to an increased belief in fundamental biological differences among races. This means that well-intentioned efforts to celebrate diversity may in fact reinforce racial stereotyping.
The main beneficiaries of the forthcoming explosion in diversity programming will be the swelling ranks of “diversity and inclusion” consultants who stand to make a pretty penny. A one-day training session for around 50 people costs anywhere between US$2,000 and $6,000. Robin DiAngelo, the best-selling author of “White Fragility,” charges up to $15,000 per event.
ADL: “It is unrealistic and unacceptable to expect the State of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory.” And yet this is what they promote in western countries.
Furthermore, bi-nationalism is unworkable given current realities and historic animosities. With historically high birth rates among the Palestinians, and a possible influx of Palestinian refugees and their descendants now living around the world, Jews would quickly be a minority within a bi-national state, thus likely ending any semblance of equal representation and protections. In this situation, the Jewish population would be increasingly politically – and potentially physically – vulnerable.
It is unrealistic and unacceptable to expect the State of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory.
But this is literally what they do to western countries. Bring in refugees/immigrants with high birthrates, call out and stand against any nationalist identity movements and praise how whites are becoming minorities in their own countries.

Berlin Police release report showing 210 rapes in 5 months, an average of two per day – with 50% being migrant perpetrators and 50 of the victims were children below the age of 16
According to statistics released by police in the German capital of Berlin, the city saw 210 rapes between March and July, an average of two rape cases per day.
The State Police criminal investigation unit, known in Germany as the Kripo, said that cases of serious rape in Berlin are surging, and of the 210 cases reported between March and July at least 50 of the victims were children below the age of 16.
The Kripo also say that around half of the suspects in the rape cases come from a foreign background — far higher than the migrant population of Berlin, which amounts to around 29.9 per cent of the city’s total residents, Focus reports.

Race baiting fake news NPR on article about officer who shot Rayshard Brooks omits that Rayshard resisted arrest, attacked the officers, stole their taser, and tried to shoot it at them
Late on the night of June 12, Rolfe and another officer, Devin Brosnan, responded to a call that 27-year-old Brooks had fallen asleep in the Wendy’s drive-through lane. After interacting for more than 40 minutes, Rolfe and Brosnan attempted to handcuff Brooks, who struggled and broke free from their restraint.
Brooks began to run away. After a brief chase, Rolfe fired at Brooks, shooting him twice in the back.
Forgetting to mention that he resisted arrest, attacked the officers, stole their taser, and shot it at them while running away. Black privilege is when most MSM tries to paint you in a good light after you fight police, resist arrest, and shoot a taser at them.

A Brooklyn gang member, released without bail in May on an attempted murder charge, participated in at least three drive-by shootings after he was freed, federal prosecutors allege.
Darrius Sutton, 23, was initially arrested in connection with a May 16 shooting in the courtyard of an East New York building that left a man seriously injured.
Despite the attempted murder rap, Sutton was set free without bail the same day of his May 20 arrest. The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said the lone witness in the case recanted.

Society’s double standards in the treatment of Jews vs White people – ethnic pride, history, immigration, nationalism, over representation

Portland Police Chief Debunks Democrats’ ‘Peaceful Protest’ Claim — in NYT; Lovell notes that there was also constant rioting and violent protest — long before federal law enforcement officers arrived.
On one night, for example, individuals screwed the doors of our North Precinct station shut, barricaded other entrances and lit the station on fire with people inside. Nearby businesses, owned by people of color, were damaged and looted. On other nights, there were multiple attempts to breach the Justice Center. Other law enforcement facilities were targeted, including the union building, which was broken into and had fires set within.
During these events, our agency has responded to assaults, stabbing, shootings, people with guns and the stockpiling of explosives. Shooting off commercial-grade fireworks and mortars is not peaceful protest. We are fortunate that no one has been killed.
The voices of victims are not heard as well. Because of the protests, officers have not been able to respond to 911 calls or have been delayed for hours. Investigators’ cases lie on their desks as they work nights to process arrests. We have seen an alarming increase in shootings and homicides. We need to redirect our focus to preventing and solving these crimes that are taking a hugely disproportionate number of minority lives.
Former Vice President Joe Biden accused federal officers of “brutally attacking peaceful protesters.” Former President Barack Obama used his eulogy at the funeral of John Lewis last week to accuse the Trump administration of “sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

Oprah Hosts White Guilt Session: ‘Whiteness Gives You an Advantage No Matter What’ – There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people — the caste system that’s been put in place
Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey declared in an episode of her eponymous series, The Oprah Conversation that “whiteness” and “white privilege” afford unspecified benefits to white people in the “caste system” of America.
In an episode entitled “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” — featuring former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho and drawing its name from Acho’s YouTube series of the same name — Oprah Winfrey invited several white people to discuss “racism,” “white privilege,” and “whiteness.” Oprah praised her white guests for accusing themselves of being “racist.”
There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people — the caste system that’s been put in place — but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.
[Whites have a] leg up. You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term “white privilege” is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter.
Emmanuel Acho said whites living a “white” life become “part of the problem”:
Here’s what I told my friends with their white children. I said, “Y’all live in a white cul-de-sac, in a white neighborhood, in a white city, in a white state. If you were not careful. your children will live their whole life white, and at [the ages of] 26, 27, they’ll end up being a part of the problem, because you just let them and allowed them to live a completely white, sheltered, and culture-less life.
In the debut episode, “How to Be an Antiracist,” Oprah and best-selling author professor Ibram X. Kendi will speak with white readers who confront their own racist beliefs. The episode will be available to stream for free exclusively on Apple TV+ beginning Thursday, July 30 at 4pm PST.
“The Oprah Conversation” will continue with a special two-part interview with athlete, commentator, activist, and creator and host of “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” Emmanuel Acho on Friday, August 7. In Part 1, Acho will speak to Oprah about his web series and take questions from white viewers. Part 2 of the interview will see Acho and Oprah dive deeper into their raw, unfiltered discussions about race in response to bold questions from white and Latinx guests.

Seth Rogen; “I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people” – “take as they would say, anti-racist measures”
Hollywood actor-producer Seth Rogen would like it to be known that he wants to see fewer white people both behind and in front of the camera. Rogen told Entertainment Weekly that he is making an effort to diversify the ranks of people he works with in Hollywood, after years of failing to do so.
“I mean personally, I think I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people. And if I’m succeeding or I’m not, I’m very much looking to have a far more diverse group of writers and directors and actors that we generally work with, because that group is not incredibly diverse, you know?”
“So that’s how I’ve been trying to deal with it, is just to actively take as they would say, anti-racist measures to assure that some work is doing done to acknowledge that Black people are very marginalized in American society,”
Rogen recently told moviegoers who disagree with his support for the Black Lives Matter movement that they don’t “deserve” his movies.

And after he became President, Trump signed 2 executive orders in 2017 to unleash the Justice dept. on child traffickers and pedophiles and take their property. Arrests for these crimes have skyrocketed since.
Trump then signed the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) in 2018, a bill which clarifies the country’s sex trafficking law to make it illegal to knowingly assist, facilitate, or support sex trafficking, and amend the Section 230 safe harbors of the Communications Decency Act (which make online services immune from civil liability for the actions of their users) to exclude enforcement of federal or state sex trafficking laws from its immunity.
And Trump signed another EO in Jan.: Combating Human Trafficking and Online Child Exploitation in the United States
Since President Trump took office in January 2017, there have been 12,470 arrests for human trafficking, according to arrest records compiled by investigative journalist Corey Lynn, and over 9130 victims rescued. These numbers are a year old.
The most arrested in one event is 2,300 suspects in Operation Broken Heart.
The arrests of Epstein, Maxwell, Raneire, Mack and Bronfman (NXVIUM), Wienstein were federal sealed indictments that we would have never seen if Trump was not elected. The FBI also raided Peter Nygard’s AKA “the Canadian Epstein” offices in NY.
The evidence is overwhelming that Trump is taking pedophiles and child traffickers down, not protecting them like the MSM and past administrations.
Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre confirmed in unsealed court documents last year that she never saw Trump at the Island, or at Epstein’s home, or with Epstein, and didn’t witness Trump involved with any of the girls groomed by Epstein.
“It’s true that he didn’t partake in any sex with us, but it’s not true that he flirted with me. Donald Trump never flirted with me,” said Giuffre.
Trump 2015: “That island was really a cesspool, no question about it, just ask Prince Andrew, he’ll tell you about it – the island was an absolute cesspool and he’s been there many times,” said Trump.
Trump at CPAC 2015 on Bill Clinton: “He’s got lot of problems coming up with the famous island, with Jeffrey Epstein”
Trump was the only high profile person to help out a victim of Epstein:

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed Friday a bill from the GOP-controlled Legislature that would have shifted elderly people with COVID-19 away from nursing homes and into entirely separate facilities.
The bill was a direct challenge to the Whitmer administration’s current handling of nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has focused on caring for those with the virus in isolated spaces of existing homes.
The governor’s handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes has been a target of Republican criticism. About 33% of the state’s deaths linked to the virus have been nursing home residents or employees, according to state data.
Every state with coronavirus nursing home guidelines like those of the Whitmer administration has since shifted to a policy similar to what Republicans proposed, Lucido said Friday.
This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available. Participants are randomized to 1 of 12 arms, with one control arm and one baseline arm. We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms.
As detention centers became incapable of housing the massive influx of migrants, the Department of Health and Human Services started placing children into the care of sponsors who would oversee the minors until their bids for refugee status could be reviewed. But in many cases, officials failed to confirm whether the adults volunteering for this task were actually relatives or good Samaritans — and not unscrupulous egg farmers or child molesters. The department performed check-in visits at caretakers’ homes in only 5 percent of cases between 2013 and 2015, according to the report.
The Senate’s investigation built on an Associated Press report that found more than two dozen unaccompanied children were placed in homes where they were sexually abused, starved, or forced into slave labor.
The agency placed 90,000 migrant children into sponsor care between 2013 and 2015. Exactly how many of those fell prey to traffickers is unknown, because the agency does not keep track.
Columbia University Health has been hosting Zoom workshops as part of a series titled “From Ally to Accomplice at Columbia: Working Group for Examining and Deconstructing Whiteness to Mitigate Racial Trauma.”
The weekly online “interactive curriculum,” which began July 7 and concludes Monday, is designed for “white-identified students” to “engage in exploration of their white identities and build community and accountability around deconstructing whiteness and white privilege to facilitate the development of an antiracist lens.”
“This virtual group aims to begin to equip students with the time, space, and skills for the self-reflection and processing of privilege that is necessary to meaningfully dismantle systems of racial oppression from a position that has privilege,” the university explained on its website.
Kelsey Lipp, a member of the Cherokee Nation who was charged with murder and robbery, saw her legal case turned upside down by a landmark Supreme Court ruling which limited Oklahoma’s ability to prosecute tribal citizens.
Kelsey Lipp was sitting in jail, charged with robbery and murder, when her lawyer walked into court with three pieces of paper and a new plan to get her case thrown out.
The evidence looked sparse: A letter identifying Ms. Lipp as a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and a grainy photocopy of her tribal identification card. But under a landmark Supreme Court decision last month declaring that a huge patch of Oklahoma sits on a Native American reservation, those papers now meant that the state could not prosecute Ms. Lipp or thousands of other tribal citizens like her.
Blacks and Hispanics spend on average $2300 more per year on visible goods (clothing, jewelry, cars) and less on healthcare and education than whites – conspicuous consumption plays a role in their lower wealth accumulation
Blacks and Hispanics spend up to 30% more than whites of comparable income on visible goods like clothing, cars and jewelry, the researchers found. This meant that, compared to white households of similar income, the typical black and Hispanic household spent $2,300 more per year on visible items. To do that, they spent less on almost all other categories except housing, and they saved less.
we show that Blacks and Hispanics devote larger shares of their expenditure bundles to visible goods (clothing, jewelry, and cars) than do comparable Whites. We demonstrate that these differences exist among virtually all subpopulations, that they are relatively constant over time, and that they are economically large. While racial differences in utility preference parameters might account for a portion of these consumption differences, we emphasize instead a model of status seeking in which conspicuous consumption is used to reflect a household’s economic position relative to a reference group. Using merged data on race and state level income, we demonstrate that a key prediction of our model – that visible consumption should be declining in mean reference group income – is strongly borne out in the data separately for each racial group. Moreover, we show that accounting for differences in reference group income characteristics explains most of the racial difference in visible consumption. We conclude with an assessment of the role of conspicuous consumption in explaining lower spending by racial minorities on items likes health and education, as well as their lower rates of wealth accumulation

Members of Louisville’s Cuban community plan to gather Sunday in support of a NuLu restaurant owner who says he was threatened by Black Lives Matter protesters during a recent demonstration.
Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.
Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them “mafia tactics” used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.
“There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. “… All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?”
Lauren Justice, co-owner of Nouvelle Bar & Bottle, said she and other NuLu business owners have “a responsibility to admit” that gentrification occurred and to actively participate in increasing diversity in the area.
As a white business owner, she said she thinks the protesters’ demands are legitimate, and she and her business partner “humbly welcome feedback.”
“As owners of Nouvelle, we realize we could and should have been doing more and we are trying to do better,” she said by email. “… We know there’s a lot more work to be done and that a long-term commitment is what it takes to make sustainable change.”

UK Brixton; Black nationalist paramilitary movement allowed to organize and march; called “anti-racism demonstrators” – imagine if white nationalists tried this – NFAC
Among the groups of people marching were one group, dressed in black and equipped with what appeared to be anti-stab vests. One protester was wearing a balaclava, while another, angrily confronted police officers telling them to f*** off.
Responding to the event, Mr Farage said: ‘Terrifying scenes in Brixton today. A paramilitary-style force marching in the streets. This is what the BLM movement wanted from the start and it will divide our society like never before.’
However, co-leader of the Green Party Jonathan Bartley responded to Mr Farage’s intervention. He tweeted: ‘You are just trying to create division. But these people in Brixton today know that love and justice will conquer the fear and hate that you peddle. Hope is what people need right now and they are showing the pathway toward it.’
‘Fear and hate you peddle’ — it’s totally right wingers that are peddling fear and hate…

Muslim privilege – Rape all the underage white girls you want; police were told to find other ethnicities to investigate instead in grooming gang scandal
A muslim grooming gang was free to roam the streets and abuse young [white] girls because police officers were told to “find other ethnicities” to investigate, a detective has claimed.
At least 57 young girls are thought to have been exploited by a paedophile network of around 100 suspected perpetrators based in south Manchester in the 2000s. The gang, mainly comprised of Asian men, hooked their victims on drugs, groomed, and sexually abused them. One girl, aged 15, died after being injected with heroin by a 50-year-old man.

Students at Cornell University have compiled a list of nearly 40 courses on race and racism available at the Ivy League institution.
Students Prameela Kottapalliand Louise Wang started a student-led resource list naming 39 classes centered around race and racism.
“As a baseline, as allies, we should take history classes, we should devote our time to anti-racism organizations, learning about the intersectionality of oppression,” Kottapalli said in a statement to the Cornell Daily Sun. “We need to look at our classes and think, ‘OK, let’s decolonize our schedules,’ to take classes that expand our perspectives.”
Courses on the list include “The Future of Whiteness,” “Race and Sex: Arabian Nights,” “Refugees and the Politics of Vulnerability: Intersections of Feminist Theory,” and “Prisons, Politics, and Policy.”
During a hearing by the House Oversight and Reform Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis on Friday, Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) asked whether hospitals have “perverse incentive” to inflate COVID-19 fatality numbers.
Shockingly, Redfield admitted that they do.
“I think you’re correct in that we’ve seen this in other disease processes, too,” Redfield said.
“Really, in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV — the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there’s greater reimbursement,” he explained. “So, I do think there’s some reality to that.”
“When it comes to death reporting, though, ultimately, it’s how the physician defines it in the death certificate, and … we review all of those death certificates. So I think, probably it is less operable in the cause of death, although I won’t say there are not some cases,” he continued. “I do think though [that] when it comes to hospital reimbursement issues or individuals that get discharged, there could be some play in that for sure.

Ireland: The holding of a major Muslim prayer service at an “iconic” Irish sporting venue has sent a message “to the whole world” that Ireland is a welcoming country
The holding of a major Muslim prayer service at an “iconic” Irish sporting venue has sent a message “to the whole world” that Ireland is a welcoming country, an Islamic leader has said.
About 200 Muslims gathered at Dublin’s Croke Park stadium on Friday to celebrate the Islamic festival of Eid.
Croke Park is the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).
It was made available so Eid could be marked in a safe and socially-distanced way during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The event was addressed by Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri, the chair of Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council.
In one video, with more than 40,000 views, Didi nonchalantly walks across a Swedish car park while describing his passage into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. In front of several big lorries, he points to where in the truck you can hide and likely survive, how much time crossing takes and which vehicles are better as hideouts for people hoping to enter Europe.
Since 2017, we have come across over two dozen accounts like Didi’s on YouTube – of people from North Africa migrating to Europe and beyond using irregular and often dangerous means, and passing that knowledge onto other users, while blogging about their lives. As this virtual community has grown, online platforms have fostered an ecosystem for migratory networks, central to which are personalities such as Didi and their relatively unfiltered content, standing in contrast with Morocco’s heavily state-dominated media landscape. Some of the most popular accounts have 100,000 followers on YouTube and 40,000 on Instagram.
the stakes are much higher when what you’re promoting is irregular migration.
Violent rioters = peaceful protesters
Illegal migration = irregular migration
The land with no face masks: Holland’s top scientists say there’s no solid evidence coverings work and warn they could even damage the fight against Covid-19
‘Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence,’ said Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. ‘There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact.’
This is a bold but highly controversial stance – especially as fears grow of a second wave sweeping through Europe. Last week, Downing Street joined the global stampede to enforce face masks in public spaces such as shops, supermarkets and stations, following Scotland, Spain and France, along with Holland’s neighbouring nations of Belgium and Germany.
Holland’s position is based on assessments by the Outbreak Management Team, a group of experts advising the government. It first ruled against masks in May and has re-evaluated the evidence several times, including again last week.
It believes they detract from a clear three-pronged message that has kept deaths from coronavirus down to less than half the rate in Britain: wash hands regularly, maintain social distancing of 1.5 metres and stay at home if suffering any symptoms.
The one exception outside of the medical frontline has been on public transport, where masks are mandatory on the basis it is difficult to stay apart on crowded buses, ferries and trains. ‘We have seen this approach works,’ said Christian Hoebe, a professor of infectious diseases in Maastricht and member of the advisory team. ‘Face masks should not be seen as a magic bullet that halts the spread.

Bryan Singer, once lauded for helming one of the films that kicked off the modern superhero movie era, allegedly used “X-Men” roles and auditions as a way to get sexual favors from young men and once invited a sex offender to the set of the 2000 movie, a report said.
- Bryan Singer allegedly offered auditions and roles in “X-Men” to young men in exchange for sexual favors, a report said
- One on-set source denies Singer gave then-boyfriend Adam Robitel a cameo role for this reason
- “X-Men” insiders said the casting of Pyro actor Alex Burton should have raised a “red flag”
The report also said that a number of young men, including some who were minors at the time, have claimed in published interviews that Singer offered “X-Men” auditions and roles in exchange for sex. THR noted that the smaller and extra roles were usually played by handsome young men.

“This is a unique situation where we as a company simply cannot take the risk if in … four years the vaccine is showing side effects,” said Ruud Dobber, a top exec at AstraZeneca.
“In the contracts we have in place, we are asking for indemnification. For most countries, it is acceptable to take that risk on their shoulders because it is in their national interest,” said Dobber, adding that Astra and regulators were making safety and tolerability a top priority.
AstraZeneca is one of the 25 pharmaceutical companies across the world, testing experimental drugs that could be used to combat the deadly virus. And, of course, if testing yields positive results, AstraZeneca could manufacture hundreds of millions of doses, with no legal recourse if side effects are seen.

Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield said in a Buck Institute webinar that suicides and drug overdoses have surpassed the death rate for COVID-19 among high school students.
“But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools,” Redfield said. “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.”

Seattle’s hard-left city council is trying to their abolish Police department & replace it with a university-style group of activists trained in “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis.”
Seattle City Council moves to abolish the entire Seattle Police Department and replace it with a “civilian led Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention.” They want to replace the police force with nonprofit programs and “community-led activities.”
The council endorses the “Decriminalize Seattle” agenda that would replace the police force with: –”Culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections” –”Housing, food security, and other basic needs” –”Trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis”
And finally, the plan demands that the City conduct an “immediate transfer of underutilized public land for BIPOC community ownership”—in essence, the redistribution of land, which is a hallmark of Marxist regimes.
The Trump administration has announced it will sanction the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), a paramilitary organization operating in Xinjiang, where Chinese authorities, aided by the XPCC, are perpetrating a cultural and demographic genocide against ethnic minorities.
Why it matters: XPCC controls vast swaths of the economy in Xinjiang. Depending on how rigorously the sanctions are enforced, they could hobble the region’s economy and blunt China’s plans for further economic development of the region.
The Trump administration also said it would sanction two Chinese Communist Party officials affiliated with the XPCC, according to a press release from the Department of Treasury.
